In anticipation of the governor signing into law his animal cruelty legislation, Rep. Caltagirone expresses his gratitude to lawmakers and supporters of the bill. Governor Ed Rendell is shown with one of his golden retrievers, Maggie, whom he adopted after learning the dog was the victim of the cruel surgeries the law will now prevent, thanks to Caltagirone’s leadership. Maggie had three cesarean sections at the hands of her breeders before being turned over to a rescue shelter.
